Designer Dolls For UNICEF, Marion Cotillard Is Lady Dior, Maison Martin Margiela Makes Moves In Asia, And More…
Fashion houses, including Chanel, Jean Paul Gaultier, Givenchy, and Christian Dior, all pitched in to create designer dolls for UNICEF, with proceeds going to help vaccinate children in Darfur. Les Frimousses, as they are called, will be on auction at Paris’ Drouot Montaigne on December 13.
Marc Jacobs is hosting a Halloween Beaux Arts Ball in Provincetown this weekend, designed by Bryan Rafanelli, who also planned Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. All 900 tickets for the event reportedly sold out in minutes.
The campaign doesn’t officially break until November 14, but a few of Marion Cotillard’s new Steven Klein-lensed ad campaign images have been released already. Styled by Giovanna Battaglia, the actress is showing off a crocodile-skin Lady Dior bag as she stands in front of the Hollywood hills.
Maison Martin Margiela has just opened a new store in Beijing—its largest store to date. The three-story shop has a “complete range of womenswear, menswear, and home furnishings,” and just for fun, there’s a metallic slide going from the entrance of the store to the top floor.
